Maple Syrup

What it does :

Maple syrup can add a dry, woodsy flavor to your beer if added during the wort boil, or a smooth, sweet flavor if added before bottling.

What it is:

Maple Syrup is a sugary extract made from maple tree sap and consists mostly of sucrose. The most distinctive flavor can be obtained from raw or unblended sources of maple syrup, otherwise the unique essence may be blunted.
